Preparing Our Garden for Planting
One aspect f lifely products is to make them yourself. In fact, to make the stuff of everyday life from materials obtained in your own ecosystem is the most preferable way to get whatever you need for your life. That was the way it was done for millennia before industrialization.
By making what we need ourselves, we have complete control over the design, the materials and the methods us to make it, and we are in direct contact and interaction with Nature, in which we dwell.
Larry and I spent this past weekend clearing away the remains of last year’s garden and the weeds that had grown over the winter, in preparation for planting our new garden.
Under the overgrowth I found pansies, green onions with flowers where I had planted discarded roots, chives with budding blossoms, borage flowering, and swiss chard still growing leaves I put in my salad after taking the photo.
Here we are making the food we will eat later in the year. All organic, grown in the clean air blowing in from the nearby Pacific Ocean, with compost made from kitchen scraps and water from the well.
This is as Lifely as it gets. I can think of improvements in the gardening methods, but we’re making our food with our own hands, from our own land.
